Sugar Processing Enzymes

Biotechnology increases the efficiency of sugar processing and energy saving by virtue of hydrolytic enzymes such as Dextranase and Amylase.

Enzymes for sugar are used as aids to sugar production and refining by removing materials which inhibit crystallization or cause high viscosity. In some parts of the world, sugar cane contains significant amounts of starch, which becomes viscous, thus slowing filtration processes and making the solution hazy when the sucrose is dissolved. This problem can be overcome by using the most thermostable Alpha-Amylase Enzyme which is entirely compatible with the high temperatures and pH values that prevail during the initial vacuum evaporation stage of sugar production.

Dextrans are produced by the action of dextransucrase from Leuconostocmesenteroides on sucrose and found as a slime on damaged cane and beet tissue, especially when processing has been delayed in hot and humid climates. Dextran has the sucrose molecule as part of its structure and thus inhibits sucrose crystal growth.

This produces needle-like crystals which are not readily harvested by equipment designed for the approximately cubic crystals otherwise obtained. Dextran can produce extreme viscosity in process streams and even bring the plant to a stop. Problems like these can be resolved with the use of Dextranase Enzyme.

ENZYMES BASED BIOCIDE

Our enzymes based biocide can be utilized for the purpose of Mill Sanitation. Enzymes for Sugar accelerate the conversion of starch into glucose. The conversion takes place through processes like liquefaction and saccharification. The sugarcane plant has many polysaccharides. Cellulose and hemicelluloses, present in the cell wall, give structural strength to the standing cane plant. As they are insoluble in water, they do not affect the sugar manufacturing process.
